Yesterday, the @VZWSupport Twitter account reported that the update for the Droid X2 had started rolling out. We contacted Verizon spokesman Albert Aydin, who confirmed today via an email the following:
"The initial push will be over-the-air with notifications sent to Droid X2 owners," said Aydin.
User-initiated (manual) updates will be available soon. He did not have have a date for manual updates when we spoke to him, moments ago.
Verizon Wireless rolls out updates in phases and it will take about a week to complete. In general updates that start on Thursday are very limited until Friday when the network is more able to handle the data. Verizon Wireless by waiting until a Friday insures that corporate email and business data speeds are not effected.
Along with many Gingerbread features such as app download manager, keyboard multi-key shortcuts, better copy/paste, new colors/widgets and calendar options the Motorola Droid X2 update offers glitch fixes. It also installs Google Books.
We reported all the details of the changes in the update yesterday. Read details of the Droid X2 Gingerbread update.
